Another Vietnam story about the Last Battle

The Auxiliary Navy Ships (AO, AE, AOE, AF, AK, AD, AR, and AG’s) manned by full time Navy Sailors kept the fleet armed, fueled, supplied, repaired and ready for action during Vietnam with little mention in Naval History. May 15, 2020 is the 45th Anniversary of the last official battle of the Vietnam War, the repatriation of the U.S. ship S.S. Mayaguez. The last 19 names on the Vietnam Wall are the Marines and Air Force members killed in this battle. This is the story of one of the lesser known ships of that rescue action. The USS Kiska AE-35.
